I was directed by support to add feature requests here:
1) Please expand the capabilities of WPBakery to match what Gutenberg can do within your theme’s template builders. For example, only Gutenberg has blocks with single post elements such as Title and Excerpt. They’re not accessible via WPBakery, yet WPBakery functionality is often the reason people purchase this theme. It’s very frustrating to have to go back and forth between page builders to access different things.
2) Please improve your documentation to outline very clearly which page builders can and cannot be used for certain things.
3) Please add the ability to set a featured image as a row background in WPBakery when building a single post template.
